Oral Answers to Questions — Hospital Ancillary Staff (Dispute) (15 Mar 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: As the secretary of the NUPE Members of Parliament, may I ask the Secretary of State whether he will agree that a basic rate of £18 a week is just not good enough and that the average earnings are well below the average earnings in other industries? Will he not further agree, if he considers the whole object of the Government's policy of £1 plus 4 per cent., that all that is happening is a...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (7 Mar 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: I think that the House will agree that what we have heard from the hon. Member for Cirencester and Tewkesbury (Mr. Ridley) is a typical Conservative speech in every sense of the word. He poses the questions but does not give the answers. We heard from the hon. Gentleman that it is undesirable for the pound to be pegged at a fixed rate and that a floating rate makes no difference. We...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (7 Mar 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: Of course, I accept that. Nevertheless, the logistics ought to be looked at. Having served in the North Atlantic Assembly, I speak with some experience when I say that I do not believe that our defences should be run down. It is essential that we have an adequate defence. However, certain economies could be made when expenditure is running at the fantastically high figure that it is at...

Orders of the Day — Post Office (Borrowing) Bill (10 Nov 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: I heard both of the opening speeches from the Front Benches. They were delivered with moderation and with a full understanding of the problems which face the Post Office. When we talk of the Post Office we should realise that it is the third largest system of its kind in the world, and consequently in order to maintain its efficiency and its standard it is necessary to ensure that it has not...

Orders of the Day — Post Office (Borrowing) Bill (10 Nov 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: Also we know that many hon. Members do not obey what is on the Whip so we may as well dismiss that one. One of the main directions in which we could save some money in the long term is by a much greater and intensive campaign on postal codes. Huddersfield has been fortunate in having modern machinery installed in its post office, and this is an example to the whole of Yorkshire and the...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Land (2 Nov 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: I hear what the hon. Gentleman says about the labour force, but it is the cost of land that is at the root of escalating house prices, is it not? The cost of land has risen enormously under the present Government, and it is escalating all the time. What does he suggest the Government should do about it? How would he hold down the price of land so as to reduce the cost of housing?

Schedule 1: Counties and Metropolitan Districts in England (23 Oct 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: I lived in Wilmslow for 24 years, and I think that I can speak far better for Wilmslow than some of the people who are sending telegrams to hon. Members. As my hon. Friend has rightly said, people shop not in Chester but in Manchester. They do not work in Chester, they work in Manchester. Because of the reactionary nature of the Cheshire County Council, which has, for example, turned down the...

Schedule 1: Counties and Metropolitan Districts in England (23 Oct 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am sorry to intervene again, but I must put another point to my hon. Friend. I have lived for 24 years in Wilmslow, so I know Wilmslow, and, in fact, I think that it belongs to Manchester. But I fought the Macclesfield constituency in 1955, and I accept one point made by the hon. Member for Macclesfield (Mr. Winterton). Although Cheshire is Tory-controlled and totally reactionary, I believe...

Schedule 1: Counties and Metropolitan Districts in England (23 Oct 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: Never mind the statistics. Will the hon. and learned Gentleman deal with me because I lived in Wilmslow for 24 years and I know a little about the place. The majority of people living in Wilmslow work in Manchester and the only reason that the hon. and learned Gentleman wants it in Cheshire is because it is a Tory-controlled council. This is concerned with politics. Will the hon. and...

Schedule 1: Counties and Metropolitan Districts in England (23 Oct 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: Poynton has a very strong Labour Party which has helped tremendously towards that objective. I wish the hon. Gentleman would not spoil his case. If he will argue that Poynton should remain in Cheshire, I assure him that, whatever the Whips may say, I shall be in his Lobby tonight. If he will not stop involving Wilmslow in it, which I believe is an integral part of Manchester, I will be in the...

Schedule 1: Counties and Metropolitan Districts in England (23 Oct 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: I agree entirely that Wilmslow should go into the greater Manchester area, but what is the position taken up by the Opposition Front Bench about Poynton? Is there not a case for Poynton remaining in Cheshire?

Schedule 1: Counties and Metropolitan Districts in England (23 Oct 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: To start with, where does the hon. Gentleman get the figure of 30,000? That is more than the total population of the Wilmslow urban district. Would he agree that no one on either side appreciates more than I the great work that Jack McCann did in this House? He was a tremendous Member of Parliament, appreciated by both sides. But Jack McCann would have said that it is the long-term view that...

Schedule 1: Counties and Metropolitan Districts in England (23 Oct 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: Where does the 30,000 figure come from?

Schedule 1: Counties and Metropolitan Districts in England (23 Oct 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Gentleman may like to know that after I fought Blackpool, South in 1951 they made my opponent a knight six months later, that when I fought Macclesfield in 1955 they made my opponent a knight in three months, and then in Huddersfield, West when I beat the sitting Member they made him a peer within one month.

Proceedings of the House (Broadcasting) (19 Oct 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: My hon. Friend is making a very valid point, but his speech seems to be very much in favour of not televising the House. Does not he agree that the Motion is woolly and wild? It obviously attracts the Liberal Party. Cannot we have a positive Motion to decide what we want to do if we have an experiment? We do not know what we are trying to experiment about.

Petitions: Animals (Dissection) (2 Aug 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: Mr. Speaker, in my capacity as chairman of the All Party Humane Research Group and vice-chairman of the Animal Welfare Group, I beg to present a Petition, signed by over 50,000 people, which reads: To the Honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled. The Humble Petition of Citizens of Great Britain and Northern Ireland sheweth that...

Orders of the Day — Clause 80 (17 Jul 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: I had the pleasure of serving on Mr. Speaker's Conference and I took the view that there was a distinction between serving on an authority and voting for it. It was that view which caused Mr. Speaker's Conference to come to the decision it did. Any person of 18 years of age in July, 1970, would be 21 or 22 before he had the right to vote in a General Election. I take the point of my hon....

Orders of the Day — Clause 80 (17 Jul 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is the hon. Gentleman arguing that a person who has been at a technical college, has left at 18 and is in employment for three years until he is 21 is less fitted to represent the community than a person who has spent a closeted life at Oxford, Cambridge or some other university, and who does not know what the world is all about?
